Bosch EX14 Extreme Camera
BOSCH’S EX14 is
made of an injection-molded ABS/nylon resin and engineered specifically to
withstand heat, cold, and humidity. And its IP67, NEMA 6 and 6P-rated design
survives extreme weather, corrosion, dust, and even water submersion.
The EX14 has an
operational range of -76°F to 140°F (-60°C to +60°C), making it ideal for
extreme environments. One of the harshest applications has to be the Mt
Erebus volcano crater in Antarctica, where the EX14’s performance has exceeded
everyone’s expectations. The camera has been exposed to intense cold (-25° to
-60° C), frequent blizzards, and corrosive volcanic gas for nearly five years.
It is currently recording the now passive convection of the lava lake but is
ready to capture the next transition to explosive activity.
McIntosh, Associate Professor of Geochemistry, Volcanologist, Geochronologist
at the New Mexico Bureau of Geology & Mineral Resources and Co-director of
the New Mexico Geochronology Research Laboratory recently wrote, “The equipment
has been performing very well – the camera is the same one that we installed in
December 2005. If only all our other equipment on Erebus worked this
environment – and many others – the EX14 delivers a clear picture for effective
monitoring, with up to 540 TVL color images and outstanding IR sensitivity for
low-noise images in dark conditions. The camera’s compact design, plug-and-play
installation, and low voltage requirements make it ideal for difficult
